I hope your week is going well.
Dark and dull here today with rain forecast for later so it looks like a good day to do some crafting.
At Tag Tuesday this time the theme is Poppies and was chosen by Wendy and her poppies post is here. The themes for the challenges at Tag Tuesday are always really good and there is plenty of time to join in.
I am sure anyone of my age has a tale about World War 2 or even World War 1. Making the tag reminded me of my dad. It was said that he was never the same person when he came back from his awful experiences in France. I was born whilst he was there so never knew the man before. He was only a lad really, in his very early 20s when he went after marrying my mum just before that. I was born 10 months later.
I found this free to use colouring page on Google and coloured it digitally with lots of effects. Then it was printed out 4 times so I could do decoupage on the poppies and tin helmet
The background tag is covered in alluminium tape and run through the Cuttlebug with a TH Alterations folder. I rubbed this with black ink and worked it into the raised bits. I haven't done any decoupage for ages so it was a nice change.
Hope you have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
